A Ferretti Yachts motoryacht received the Chinese Yachting Industry Award at the Xiamen International Boat Show.

The Ferretti 570 was recognized as Best Motor Yacht in the category below 60 feet. Speedo Marine, the local dealer with which the Ferretti Group displayed an Altura 840 during the Xiamen show, was selected as the best dealer on the Chinese market.

Ferretti said the award is considered one of the most prestigious in the boating sector. The Italian builder said the yachts are assessed by a highly qualified jury that selects the new reference models for the Chinese market.

The award was given on the opening day of the Xiamen show, which was held Nov. 2-5 at the Xiamen Marina. Two hundred yachts and boats were on display during the show.
